We are located just 15 miles south of sunny Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii, only minutes from one of the world's best snorkel and shore dive sites, Pu'uhonua o Honaunau, the Place of Refuge. Our farm is a great base from which to explore the Kona Coast as well as Volcanoes National Park.

We grow 100% Kona coffee on our farm. We have several orchards organized in rows on the hill side as well as several plantings in the shade of tall macadamia nut trees. Our farm is lined with nearly 200 macadamia nut trees that provide us with a bountiful harvest. In addition to the coffee and nuts, we have many varieties of fruit trees.
We have Golden Globe mangos, Hayden mangos, papayas, pineapples, guava, passionfruit, lychee, cherimoya, soursop, lime, sour orange, pomegranate, avocado, bananas, figs, coconuts, monstera, rose apples, custard apples and noni. We also grow cocoa and kukui nut. Our farm features unique lava rock out croppings as well as beautiful varieties of palm trees and flowers.
Every guest is treated to a tour of the farm. We will show you how we process the coffee and care for the trees. When you arrive, you will have a bouquet of freshly picked flowers as well as an assortment of in season fruits from our farm.
The Tree Top Apartment is a private second floor apartment with ocean and mountain views. The apartment is completely separate and private from the owner's home. The cathedral ceilings, sky light, stained glass window and sliding glass door to the lanai invite in the sun and outdoors to the apartment. At approximately 750 square feet, the apartment accommodates four people. Our farm is at a comfortable 1000 foot elevation so air conditioning is not needed. We are blessed with warm sunny days and evenings perfect for sleeping.
There is a master bedroom with a queen bed and a second bedroom with two twin beds. The two bedrooms and the kitchen have ceiling fans. The living room has a TV, DVD player, VCR and CD player. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals while you are in paradise. We have dedicated wireless high speed internet access. You have easy parking next to your own private entrance. We also have boogie boards, umbrellas and beach chairs for you to borrow.

Originally from Nazareth, Pennsylvania, we moved to the Big Island to live our dream of owning a coffee farm and vacation rental. We first visited Hawaii while on our honeymoon. Like most people, we fell in love with the islands and dreamed of living in paradise. For two of our visits to the Big Island, we stayed at the farm. It was our ideal home in Hawaii. We could farm coffee and macadamia nuts and run a vacation rental. When we came to the Big Island to find a place to live, we booked a rental on the farm that would become our home. We hoped to find a house to rent, but would have been happy with a condo that had a lanai for us to spend time outside. We were so excited when the owner told us he was looking to sell the farm. We knew then that is was meant to be.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2004
We chose to buy our Kona coffee farm in Captain Cook on the Big Island of Hawaii for many reasons: perfect weather, gorgeous ocean, beautiful landscape, breathtaking sunsets, happy, friendly people. ALOHA SPIRIT

We were met by Todd who was very nice and accommodating! Our issue was his driveway, which he described as not the best. I had rented a midsize car, Hyundai Elantra which hit bottom on several times while driving down the driveway. I wish he would of indicted we would need a higher clearance vehicle. I'm used to driving in rough terrain, but could not afford to damage a vehicle, especially a rented one. We decided to find a different place to stay since we could not go in and out safely. The area is not lit at night. This would be ok to stay if you had a jeep. There was no lock on the front door, however, I think it would be hard for someone to find this place. Todd was nice but it was a terrible experience for us as we wanted a place to go in and out of, and were not able to do that here. Todd said the rental places did not check the bottoms of the cars. We were given no refund. I believe the situation could of been avoided if Todd would of said the vehicle would need a specific clearance! Besides losing the cost of the VRBO, I could of been paying damages for rental car, and miss even seeing this wonderful island!
I just found out that we were refunded some of our money, which I felt was very appropriate. We bid stay 1 night and were given a nice tour of the farm!
The "tree house" apartment was an enjoyable place to base our Kona area adventures, away from the noise and crowds of the Kailua area. We enjoyed the spacious lanai, sounds of cocqui frogs at night and roosters in the morning. The kitchen was well-stocked, the bathroom and bedroom had all that we needed. The tour of the farm was cool and we enjoyed the fresh papaya and samples of Todd's own coffee beans. The interior was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the privacy of the upper apartment, although I did not realize that the lower half of the building was also a guest rental - the folks staying there were up slamming doors at dawn and in general we would have liked not to have other guests so close. The driveway is 1/4 mile long and very bumpy, not good to drive without 4WD. The neighbors dogs did bark very loudly if they heard a disturbance even at night which interrupted our rest on a couple of occasions. There is TV and WiFi, some DVDs, and books for evening entertainment. For those who want to be out in the country and closer to Kealekekua Bay and Place of Refuge but further from Kailua town, this a good spot. Just 3-4 miles from the Coffee Shack for a nice breakfast and stellar view.
Enjoyed the property and picking up mac nuts. Was close to great snorkeling and beach access.
House Is clean and comfortable. I appreciate the stainless steel pots and pans. The fruits were perhaps not abundant when we came, but there were two ok papayas in the kitchen on arrival. The host is friendly and gave an enjoyable tour of their property. The dogs are nice and mellow. The driveway was manageable once we figured out how to navigate the rough spots, before that we scraped the bottom of our vehicle a couple times, even going slowly.
Todd greated and welcomed us. He made sure everything was ok. A bowl of fruit was waiting for us and most condiments available in a very well provided kitchen. Easy to find using the directions. You have the unit to yourself. The main house is a way away. This is not a 5 star establishment, but it is clean and comfortable. The road down to the farm and the farm itself is best described as rustic as are most of these small old Kona coffee holdings in the area seem to be. It probally wont be long before the large corps start cobbling them up.
My family (2 middle aged parents & college aged daughter) stayed in the treetop apartment for a week and it was amazing. Comfortable beds, beautiful surroundings, fully stocked kitchen and use of a grill steps away, as well as all the other amenities noted elsewhere. Todd was very helpful, kind, and gave us a real sense of what it means to live on the big island. We definitely would stay here again!
